Interesting readings today

I had a fun morning reading some of the stuff around the web and close to home (Newcastle) but only now I got the chance to blog about them.

By far the most important message to report was Jim Gray‘s views at the WS-GAF mailing list which confirmed our suggestions on how large-scale, scalable architectures should be built. Jim Webber had previously given a very good description on our views of our architecture. The WS-GAF mailing list has around 90 members and sees some interesting discussions from time to time. You can browse the archives here.

Then, it was Grek‘s post with his views on WS-RF. We knew for some time that we were not alone in our views about the difference between service- and resource-orientation. It’s soooo reassuring to finally read similar words from the “big guns”. I don’t feel alone anymore.
